Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance
Life-saving care, 24 hours a day
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), responding to patients who have suffered trauma or serious medical emergencies. They operate 24 hours a day, ensuring they can be there for the most critically ill and injured people in the region. When necessary, their medical crews can provide highly specialist care at the scene; they are able to anaesthetise, perform surgery and give blood transfusions to patients. Following treatment, they can airlift patients directly to the hospital that can best care for them going forward.
The charity operates two aircraft – one from their Kent base in daylight hours, and the other from their Surrey base 24 hours a day. This means that no matter where you are in Kent, Surrey or Sussex, you are never more than 20 minutes away from the life-saving care that only they can bring directly to your side. The charity relies almost entirely on donations and fundraising – without your kind support and micro-donations, they simply could not continue their life-saving work.
